    Has Macrium Made Things Worse?

    My win10 machine wouldn't boot. I tried system restore but it failed. Three or four restore points to go back to and none of them succeeded. I ran Kyhi's usb and found macrium on it. I thought I had a macrium image so I ran it. The Macrium image wouldn't restore. 'read failed 22 invalid...

    NTLDR not found..

    I had this machine wouldn't start, wouldn't repair, wouldn't reinstall, nothing... had a thread about it.. Well I took the drive out of that machine - we're talking Win10 - and stuck it in another machine as the system drive just to see what would happen, would it run or mainly would it cause...

    Can't Reinstall - GPT disk it says.

    I don't understand that. You mean remove the partitions from the disk onto which I wish to install?

    Can't Reinstall - GPT disk it says.

    What can I do? My win10 installation seems to have died this morning. I can't rescue it, repair it, go to a restore point or put an image on - nothing works. So I tried to install a new Win10 but got a message that it couldn't be installed because that chosen disk and partition (the very one...

    Can I Use Win10 to Partition an XP Sys Disk?

    I have an xp machine with a new install on a 1T drive. Now I think I should have had a system partition so's I have the option of reformatting and installing another OS on there - without destroying all my data. Win10 has a shrink partition ability that leaves used portions of a drive...

    Networking a Printer various Wins

    Yes. Thanks. I'm getting further into the manual. Apparently there is or used to be a 'Jetdirect Print Server' which it can plug into and which itself I'd assume plugs into a router. I wonder if they're still around and what they'd cost.... They also seem to think it can be shared across a...

    .Ah.... WX=win10. I should have seen it. thanks. . i didn't know about plugging printers into a router. never had such a printer. . pointless me trying it on the router because it needs a computer? . I have been thinking of a print server as a location where all the print processing is done...

    Networking a Printer various Wins

    thanks for the response. but i'm not sure what you're talking about. what is 'wx' ? what plugs into the router - the printer? what's the compatibility list? to what does it refer? some print server - which/what print server? HP3150 isn't on the list anyway but I'd like to know. the hp3150...

    Networking a Printer various Wins

    I have win10, win7 and winXP on our home LAN. I have XP because I have a printer that needs XP: no drivers available for any other brand of Windows: a Laserjet 3150. So the printer hangs off that PC as a local printer. Now I think if I want to access it across the network from these other...

    How About Sata Boot Sequence?

    I have this computer, happens to be winXP but that may not be important. Now I understand SATA drives boot in sequence from No. 1. So if you had four boot drives the one it would boot from would be SATA port No. 1. Right? But when I put an extra drive into this computer today it didn't. It...

    How To Lock One Computer Out of LAN?

    Well thanks for all that. I will try to understand it all. I do not understand Neemobeer's diagram. I don't understand where the firewall is set up. On the diagram it looks to be an entity of it's own. Common to both LANs. So what device has set it up? The modem? Now Bigbearyedi's very...

    How To Lock One Computer Out of LAN?

    a second access point means in fact a different line? I currently have a telstra broadband router which is one wifi access point, isn't it? The main one. The 'one line'. And I have my old wireless router in switch mode feeding into that Telstra thing. Uses the same line of course...

    How To Lock One Computer Out of LAN?

    I want to lock one computer out of our home LAN - yet let it still access the wifi so's it can get the internet. How can I do that? The purpose is to avoid any contamination it might pick up being spread across the LAN.

    Official Download Is Tied To One Machine?

    So I am correct in the first place after all. I effectively only have a licence for Win7 on that computer. I can download an ISO that I can use anywhere but wherever I use it the installation will not be capable of validation. Meaning no updates, etc. Effectively useless. Unless you want a...

    Official Download Is Tied To One Machine?

    Well thanks for that. I'll try it and see. A mate reckons if my crook machine goes down and I decide to scrap that mobo, which I well might do because though it is supposedly a good one it's been giving us unexplained freezes and crashes for months now, I need to ring MS to get them to release...

    Official Download Is Tied To One Machine?

    I have an installation of win7 Ultimate x64 that is going wobbly. So I want to run repair on it. But I can't find the original disks. found the microsoft site where I can download a win7 ISO if I give them the key from that machine. That's fine. And I'll do it. But just wonder - that will...
